Flooding chaos along Finham Brook could soon be a thing of the past thanks to £251,300 of government funding to find a solution for affected homes.
But concern has been raised that the measures may not go far enough to help all flood hit streets in the town.
Warwickshire has been awarded the cash as part of a £5million government funding pot to look into flooding.
It will help form £429,500 to be spent looking at flood alleviation plans in the county.
And the regularly flood-hit homes along Finham Brook -which is in fact a river - were identified as prime to benefit.
Houses along Clinton Lane , Chase Lane, Castle Road, Abbey Fields, Forge Road, Northvale Road, Dalehouse Lane and Stoneleigh Road will be included in the scheme.
But concerns have been raised for areas in other parts of town which may miss out on their fair share.
Cllr George Illingworth (Con, Abbey) said: “For everyone affected this is a real concern, but can we look at other areas of the town before we focus on just this one?”
The project team assured that more money may be made available at a later stage for other areas of the town.
Cllr Dave Shilton said: “Under the new local plan we are going to be covering a lot more land with concrete and we have to take that into consideration. We must also take HS2 into account as there is talk of completely diverting Canley stream which will have a big impact on flooding.”
